New Jessie Ware album completes her evolution into this decade's Alicia Keys. Beaut.

Hmm little bit disappointed in this myself on first listen. There are a few points where it teeters a little too closely to Sam Smith territory.

ooo that Fever Ray tune's a dazzler. New album has been a long time coming. That's another who one who's bound to be touring in summer for the only time in ages and Glastonbury is slacking off for a year!!

 

Came in to extol the virtues of Louisiana glamster Kyle Craft's new covers album. All the songs were written by women which sounds like a Ryan Adams idea, I know, but it's a smashing selection of tunes and he does enough of a twist on the originals - I first listened without checking the tracklist and had a whale of a time. If yer not familiar with Craft then he's been described as Bob Dylan via Ezra Furman and had an excellent album out last year.

I mentioned it a while back but Gang of Youths album was released in the UK yesterday and is great, definitely in my top 5 for the year.  The album is pretty long and would probably be my AOTY if they'd cut a few songs from it but well worth a listen for anyone who likes big Springsteen-inspired indie rock. Going to see them on Tuesday which I'm looking forward to, only £10 including fee's which is a welcome change from all the £40+ gigs recently.

This is brill btw. Bloated but they’ve gone for the huge second album and it works. How was the gig?

They were good, only managed 9 songs in about 70 minutes but I guess that comes with not really having any short songs and I can't complain given the price. Sounded huge live. They seem to be a reasonably big deal in Australia so hopefully over time they build up a decent following here too, they said the gig was sold out but didn't look like there was more than 150 people there.

Sorta know what you mean but there's a more elegant and sultry atmosphere going on in the way she does it. That trumpet solo on the third track is one of my favourite pop moments of this year and I almost got a kinda Portishead-ish vibe from Slow Me Down which is nice. Also she's the first one to brave the Latin trend thing without it feeling forced, and the Ed Sheeran collab is the most interesting thing he's done in years. Will be more likely to return to this record in full whereas her first two I only really bother with the singles.

Yeah it dawned on me that they must be something in Australia when I heard all the orchestral backing they had up and down the album. That doesn't come cheap for an indie rock band on their second LP. I am envisioning their recent tour was probably mostly be a gathering of the city's Antipodes. But yeah hopefully they can carry it off here cos they're not a style Britain is averse to and would translate well at some festies.

The new Fever Ray song isn't the most groundbreaking thing Karin's ever put out, but it's new Fever Ray and it's a solid banger so I can't complain. TOUR TOUR TOUR!

Not a name that is mentioned much on here, but there’s a new release from Shack’s Michael Head out which is very pleasant on the ears. Doesn’t stray from his usual influences but excellent none the less.

Jeeeeze this is the track they've been rinsing on 6music. I thought it was saying welcome to my hand me downs. Oops.

New track out from him too which is much more what I want from him. Got a groovy kinda baroque thing going on and it's like he's pushing my buttons on purpose. My hype for the record is back, love it!

Do have to question what the fuck those dates are though. I don't even know where Folkestone is.

New Franz Ferdinand song tomorrow, they get lumped in with indie landfill that should be left in the previous decade but their albums have stood the test of time for me, some really great stuff on Tonight and while it's a bit weird I kinda like that they re-recorded old songs and brought them up a level with their next albums bonus disk. They were great live in FFS as well, even if I don't really go back to that album.

Also that new Parquet Courts/Daniele Luppi collab album leaked yesterday so if one of you can listen to that so I know how excited to be about Friday that'd be top.

Also I know I'm late with this but I only realised the Brand New album was on Spotify on Friday and I'm loving it, never been a big fan but had to give it a whirl after you lot fawning over it so thanks for that.
